The CIJ has moved!

The CIJ has moved to RMIT's new Social Innovation Hub - a place to collaborate, innovate, and make the world a better place.

The CIJ has always been about collaboration and multidisciplinary practice. Our organisation has expanded rapidly over the past 12 months, as we’ve engaged new staff to take on our growing list of research projects and student activities.

That’s why, having outgrown our Victoria Street office, we took it as an opportunity to bring our community legal centre partners under the one roof – and add another CLC to the group! As of this month, the CIJ has moved to a newly fitted out building on Pelham Street in Carlton, and we are now co-located with our partners the Mental Health Legal Centre and the Law and Advocacy Centre for Women. In an exciting new partnership, we are also welcoming to the building Youthlaw, providing free legal advice to people aged under 25.

We believe these co-locations will not only strengthen and expand our unique student opportunities, including for RMIT law, social work and financial counselling students, but will also allow us to better collaborate, research and advocate for sensible changes to the legal system that make it fairer for all its users.

Also joining us in the building are two other innovative RMIT entities – the Melbourne Innovation District team, and Health Transformation Lab.

We are planning to host an event to launch the new space later this year – but in the meantime you can find us at:
